For customers, companies who offer a same day delivery service are a dream come true. Increasingly, big companies are beginning to offer the speedy service which means that leaving our shopping until the last minute is no longer an issue. With online shopping more popular than ever before, it’s getting harder for small businesses to keep up with the demands of customers with others offering such a convenient service. So what are the advantages to offering a same day delivery service?
Same day delivery is so attractive to customers that it’s hardly worth not offering it as a delivery option if you can afford to. Most of the big high street brands have started using the service with Amazon and Argos leading the way as it’s a sure way to see your profits increase. For small businesses who can’t financially facilitate offering a same day delivery service, considering introducing it as an option in your busiest periods is a very viable and profitable idea, especially around Christmas time when people often leave buying gifts until the last minute.
Happy customers are ultimately the key to being successful in business. Offering a same day delivery service which makes sure that a customer gets their new dress in time for a night out or a new blender just in time for that dinner party their hosting tonight, will really make their day. They’ll pass on their great news to their friends and colleagues hopefully attracting you new customers.
For small and medium sized businesses, offering a same day delivery service is a great way to save space as it means that orders aren’t left around waiting to be collected taking up valuable warehouse or office space. Logistically, it can prove to be less of a nightmare than organising your deliveries to be spread out throughout the week and if a parcel arrives same day and on time it can help to make your business appear much more efficient and reliable. Building a good relationship with existing customers means that you’ll be able to attract new customers through such positive feedback.
This year more businesses than ever have begun introducing a same day delivery option. Clothing retail giant ASOS has announced plans to introduce it later on this year so it looks like offering a same day service is something a lot of businesses are looking to move towards.
